Plans have been approved to rebuild Lloyds Court into "a new retail destination."
The proposals have been given the green light at a meeting of Milton Keynes Council’s planning committee.
The building, which dates from 1976, will retain its current appearance in view of its status as the first building to be completed in CMK. The interior, however, will change completely, with five new large retail spaces and a number of smaller units being created, designed to support a mix of larger shops and smaller businesses.
The plans also involve filling in the current service entrances on the Secklow Gate side of the building, creating one continuous pedestrian route along this side, where the new larger shop units will have their entrances.
A new service area will be created on North Row, having been relocated there after concerns from local residents saw the original plans for a service access on North Tenth Street changed.
